Ok so heres the problem. Im helping my gf's sister over the phone... so this is quite confusing for me. But anyway, problem is she is trying to connect to the internet. She has installed the modem, but it is getting no dial tone. Anyone have similar problems, drivers are installed. Anyhelp would be great.

My guess: because she's talking to you on the same phone line that her modem is trying to use. ;)

If this was via cell phone to cell phone and you know the line was not in use then have her check to make sure the wall portion of the modem is plugged into the wall socket and the phone is coming out from the other port on the modem (sometimes people switch the 2 and this can make for no dial tone on dial out).
